Stranger Things is back on Netflix with a new season full of more characters, more mysterious happenings and way more demo-dogs. I’m obsessed with the show and proved it on The Twenty: Stranger Things 2, and this is a collection of things I talked about there, plus some other fun stuff you need to see to enjoy.
This should go without saying, but – SPOILERS AHEAD!
Everybody’s talking about it – Season 2 even broke a huge social media record.

Ever wonder what the words to the Stranger Things theme might be?
Interested in checking out an orchestral performance of the Stranger Things score? It’s happening (if you don’t mind flying to London).
